NEVER SAY DIE: MELANIE SCROFANO REMAINS HOPEFUL ABOUT WYNONNA EARP’S FUTURE

Much like the character she plays, Melanie Scrofano is not one to bow to authority.

Much like the character she plays, Melanie Scrofano is not one to bow to authority.

On the phone from her home in Toronto, the actress is told that Emily Andras — Wynonna Earp’s creator, showrunner and, ostensibly, Scrofano’s boss — described Season 4 as a little more like the FX modern western series Justified and “a little less (like) Doctor Who,” particularly in its soon-to-air final six episodes.

“I have no idea what that means,” Scrofano says flatly before breaking into a laugh.

Well, does it mean, as Andras also suggests, that the final six will be “dialled down” when it comes to the sci-fi and supernatural craziness?

“What? That’s incorrect,” Scrofano says.

Wynonna Earp made her long-awaited return to the airwaves this summer after a lengthy hiatus, kicking off Season 4 with a suitably harried episode that threw Wynonna and the gang into a deranged hellscape involving alternate dimensions, zombie scientists and at least one decapitation. It nicely set the stage for the first half of the season. There was a family of new, revenge-minded villains to contend with. A character died and was reborn and vomited frogs. At one point, demonic nuns were wandering around.
